C-Class Supercharger question?

Hello All, please do not flame me for this, but its something I've been curious about for some time. Can the superchargers from the current or present C-Class mercedes benz (C230, C200, C180) be made to work on our cars. Has it ever been tried by anyone on this board. I ask because there are plenty of those floating around these days ,at very decent prices.


Thanks in advance

Seems like they would be too small unless you used two?

Wouldn't really be a good look for the M5, if I'm honest.

Benz uses Eaton style superchargers... Doubt the ports would like up, or be worth the time to try to make it work...
